April Basic Training - Ink Splats for Backgrounds

April showers bring May flowers and this months basic training... Michele here to share a super quick and fun technique with inks.


I used mostly inks but you can also use high flow acrylic paints or fluid acrylics mixed with water.  You will als need a spray bottle with water and a piece of watercolor paper.


Spray you paper with a generous amount of water.


Splatt your inks randomly arond the page.  For the paints you will have to add more water to get a good spread.


Be careful not to layer too many colors on top of each other, you may get mud pies on your page.  :)


I dried with my heat gun to set the color.


I cut my sheet into 2 tag bases for future use.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you are inspired to try this fun background technique. Thanks to Limor Webber for the inspiration.

If you would like to see what these bases ended up as please visit me over at Art Anthology on April 13th.

Special Ops: Pirate Ship Bookends

Today's Special Ops is all about books and how to keep them supported in style.
I love the look of old maps and Pirate Ships.
This pair of bookends needed an update and Craft Smith paper and Funfare Stencil were right there to help me out. Stop by my blog Scrappin' Chaos for more details on the paper and stencil.
Step 1:
Trace book end then trim a slight edge from that shape.
The paper adheres better if it isn't flush with the edge.
Step 2.
Use washi tape to mask the stencil.
Step 3.
Ink the exposed portion of the stencil.
Dust with embossing powder, heat to set.
 Step 4.
Repeat masking and setting process with each color of ink.
Step 5.
Sand wood surface of bookend.
Adhere paper using Yes Paste or similar adhesive.
When project is dry add washi tape to frame edges.
Books and classy bookends are a most versatile design element.
Get decorating and be sure to post a photo to our facebook page so we can see your handiwork!
A list of supplies can be seen on my blog Scrappin' Chaos.

Scrap On!
